SeaChange, Orca Form Whale of a VOD Combo


Orca Interactive and SeaChange International Inc. agreed to team up on sales-and-marketing activities pushing video-on-demand in the global telecommunications market and to cable operators outside of North America.

The two companies will combine SeaChange’s VOD system and Orca’s middleware to offer a complete-platform solution.

“SeaChange is clearly the global market leader for VOD solutions and is fully engaged in the international market for on-demand television,” Orca vice president of marketing and business development Yosi Glick said in a prepared statement.

“We are proud that our middleware software has been selected by SeaChange to be integrated into their solution,” he added.

Orca provides a middleware solution that enables xDSL (digital subscriber line) and FTTx (fiber to the x) operators to offer enhanced entertainment services such as broadcast TV, VOD and interactive services.
